BoS Drawing Challenge - #58 Kick in the Head

I was kinda dreading this one, but weirdly the idea came to me really quickly :

This one was fun.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #57 Sacrifice

Took longer than I'd like to get this finished - but here we are :

I was tempted to do one of Mola Ram from 'The Tower of Doom' - but the Kraken won out.

Dunesteef Episode Art - 'Last Contact' - Added alien

I was really tempted to flag doing any of the episode art tonight and play video games instead, but I went downstairs to the office and mapped out the outline of the alien :

The shaggy fur of the alien did make the vectoring a bit of a challenge. But I think I did it okay. Not sure about the pink colour. Still - it's pretty easy to change the hue !

Dunesteef Episode Art - 'Last Contact' - Added kid, darkened hills

I thought I'd change the figure a little to have him pointing at the kite :

Not sure about the colour. Also added another hill, and darkened the hills slightly to get a sense of perspective.

Dunesteef Episode Art - 'Last Contact' - Added kite / foreground hill

Spent a little time on the episode art this evening after the boys were in bed :

I like the kite colour !

Dunesteef Episode Art - 'Last Contact' - Beginning

So, no - I've not forgotten or abandoned the 100 drawings. With work in full swing I've not had as much time as before to draw. But rest assured - it's still going ! I'm maybe a third of the way through the 'sacrifice' theme drawing.

But I have some other art missions come up on the radar. First is the episode art for an upcoming installment of The Dunesteef It's for a story called 'Last Contact', which was written by Rish Outfield - one of the hosts. Rish was having trouble making his idea for the work, and wanted me to see if I could do something with it. Here it is :

I like it. There's some cool distances from the foreground kite to the far hills / clouds.

I thought I might use some of the texture layer tricks I'd used in my recent 'Drow Wisdom' pics. I've got some of the initial shapes done :

I want to try and keep the colours in the blue spectrum, and have the kite be a red or pink - to have it be the focus ( the kite is reasonably important in the story ). I'll need to alter the hue of the clouds.

Still - it's a start, and not a bad one so far !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #56 Danger Ahead

The idea for this one hit me pretty quick, in contrast to the last theme :

The robot from 'Lost in Space' is pretty cool. I prefer the one from 'Forbidden Planet' - but it's still great. Mind you - there are very few robots that I don't love in some way !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #55 Waiting

I won't lie - I REALLY struggled to think of an idea for the theme word 'waiting'.

That, and work has started up again. Boo.

But, I eventually came up with this :

In case you don't know who that is - it's Death, from the 'Sandman' comics. Death of the Endless - if there's a nicer personification of the end of life, I don't know what it is.
